NEIL Atkinson is joined by Dan Austin, Craig Hannan and Dan Morgan to talk through Liverpool’s excellent but unorthodox European away victory at Hoffenheim. Jürgen Klopp’s men were second best first half but excellent in the second and they will feel as though they have done enough to go through at this stage.

Jordan Henderson was unexpectedly substituted, while Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane looked to have had very strong second halves and Liverpool showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with on the road this season.

It’s a win to cherish. Qualification for the group stage means everything to the club after last season. But more than that. Much more — Trent Alexander-Arnold announced himself on the local, national and international stage with a brilliant free kick and a very strong performance full of composure at full back. The future should be bright for Liverpool. One more win and The Reds can kick on in Europe.
